Re: [Geek-Girls-Silicon-Valley] NaNoWriMo series on November weekends

Well, since we do have months to figure out who else will give it a go, I reserved the dates. Tentatively I scheduled all Saturdays in November, 1-3pm. Have not yet decided on location. :)

I'd be happy enough if there's just 4-5 of us doing this, it's definitely good to have a group to encourage you in your writing endeavor!

I am constantly tweaking our schedule of events, and one of the things I have been doing is trying to keep November weekends relatively free for a NaNoWriMo series. 

If you don't know what that is, it's National Novel Writing Month! In November, people all over the country endeavor to complete a 50k word novel in one month.

What I have in mind is a weekend 'check in' where we:
- Give our current word total (if you want! it's not a competition!)
- Ask for help getting un-blocked
- Brainstorm novel ideas: characters, setting, plot
- Do writing exercises together
- Take a break from writing, with friends who sympathize!

One of the weekends falls during our General Meeting date so we'll just set aside part of the General Meeting for NaNoWriMo.

This will be a quickie event, no more than 1-2 hours per weekend.

Any other geek girls wanting to give NaNoWriMo a shot?? Especially first timers like me? :)
